Infinispan 10.0.0.Beta2 and 9.4.8

Hello Infinispan users,

What ? You’re wondering where Beta1 is ? And what happened to 9.4.7 ? Unfortunately, those releases, while tagged and available on your closest Maven Central mirror will only work with Java 11, so we had to rebuild and re-release.

So, without further ado, I give you 10.0.0.Beta2 and 9.4.8.Final.

The first change I should outline is one that will impact you if you are building Infinispan from source. The previous build structure required having both JDK 8 and JDK 11 in order to compile a release which worked on both. In order to simplify the build process, as well as ensuring that the output is always consistent we now require Java 11 only. Don’t worry: the resulting binaries will still work on Java 8 and greater.

10.0.0.Beta2

The first beta of our next major release contains a number of enhancements:

[ISPN-9847] - Extend configuration to allow inline JGroups configuration and inheritance [ISPN-9699] - Cluster member owning no data [ISPN-8124] - ServerNG: Initial implementation

We will soon be posting about these features individually.

The work on persistent storage long-term compatibility is progressing with [ISPN-9845] - Stop exposing InternalMetadata via the persistence SPI

Notable fixes:

[ISPN-4075] - State transfer should preserve the creation timestamp of entries

And if you were still using the old Distributed Executor, that has been finally removed in [ISPN-9784] - Remove Distributed Executor

9.4.8.Final

Our latest point release contains lots of bug fixes and minor enhancements.
